Free training for bystander intervention in sport

Jan 09, 2024

We all have a responsibility to do something when we see maltreatment happening, but too often we freeze. Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety.

When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being harmed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows maltreatment to be so prevalent. Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter.

Course Info

Join us to learn practical and safe techniques to stand up for others! We’ve partnered with Right to Be to customize their Bystander Intervention in Sport course, and have 3000 places available per session – invite your teammates, colleagues, and friends! These sessions are for everyone.

In this training, our goal is to give participants the tools to intervene the next time they witness harmful behaviour in the sports community. We will equip you with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of maltreatment in sports spaces using our proven 5Ds methodology, our five strategies for intervention. Then we will practice so you leave our training feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.
